 Ann (Cline),
      You are not the only person who first thought this.  The Sunset
 National Garden Book was published early this year by The Sunset
 Company of California.  They are the people who make Sunset Magazine,
 is well known on the West Coast.  
      I don't know of the Sunset Zones being listed online.  The Sunset
 National Garden Book has been available in many chain bookstores, so if
 get a chance, you might wish to go thumb through it to see what it is
      I do feel that this book has the potential to be far more helpful to
 gardeners than the overly broad USDA Zones.
